Hello, May! We are getting really psyched for Lavender Day at Hauser Creek Farm on Saturday, June 15. This year, an important graduation scheduled for early June means Lavender Day is a bit later. And as it turns out, I think that's a good thing because April and May have felt more like fall than spring! I'll confess that I'm a tad nervous about the timing of this coming week's predicted rainy forecast because overwatering and excess moisture is easily the quickest way to destroy lavender, and we've had a gracious plenty rain so far this season. But, I digress...hopefully, mid-June will be about right for lavender bloom time. We invite you to the farm to cut your own bundle fresh from the field, enjoy some lavender refreshments, or just sit awhile in the shade. Red poppies are in full bloom, the honeybees are buzzing, AND our friends from Brandon Hills Vineyard will be pouring wine. Besides fresh-cut bundles, we'll also have lavender goat milk soap and starter plants for sale. We're hoping for a brilliant outdoorsy kind of day!
A few words of caution: If you are allergic to any kind of insect bite, please bring insect repellent and antihistamine as a precaution. Also, please remember sunscreen. We are a farm, plain and simple, so comfortable, closed-toe shoes are advised. We kindly request NO PETS, please. Lavender Day hours are 10 to 4. We hope you'll join us in our committment to inspire love and appreciation for lavender, wildflowers, and open spaces. See you soon!
